“Music won over professional sports (rhythmic gymnastics) when I was in my teens.The passion for it brought me places, since the day I started taking guitar lessons at the age of 12 ( which i recently restarted!) and eventually chose keys over guitar, than wrote my 1st song at age of 16. ”
MUSIC is an incredibly powerful tool for connection with others, it’s a universal language, an exchange of energies with listeners and musicians. Sometimes I use music as a meditation tool, as a positive affirmation, which helps to refocus on what’s good and most important in life- which is JOY!!! 😀 ”
